What is Muay Boran?
Muay Boran was originally developed for self-defense and also taught to the Thai military for use in warfare. Muay Boran originally is a martial art system which also has deadly techniques, grappling techniques and ground fighting techniques apart from its stand up techniques. This differs from modern-day Muay Thai, which consists only of stand up and is only a ring sport. Matches between practitioners of the art then began to be held. These soon became an integral part of Thai culture with fights being held at festivals and fighters from the different areas of Thailand testing their styles against each other. Fighters began to wrap their hands and forearms in hemp rope which not only protected their fists from injury but also made their strikes more likely to cut an opponent. Muay Boran fighters were highly respected and the best were enlisted into the King’s royal guard. During the 1920s-30s King Rama VII modernized the Thai martial arts competitions, introducing referees, boxing gloves, rounds and western boxing rings. Many of the traditional Muay Boran techniques were banned or were not practical with the addition of the new rules, and so Muay Boran went into decline and has been preserved by only few dedicated masters and teachers. – Wikipedia

Sean Smith / Student
'I met Kru Saifon when I was a young kid, but only got a chance to train with him when I was 21. It was always my dream to train with him and when I had an accident and was stuck at home, Kru Saifon took the time to come and teach me about the Ancient Art of Muay Boran, even before I was able to use my broken leg again. I continue to train with him and see him as a guru and an excellent mentor.!

It's very cool. It makes me feel like I am able to do many great things in life. I am not the strongest among my friends, or the biggest, but I have confidence that I can protect myself and if I need to I can stop them from bullying!"
